Kewl ! ;-)

Yeah, the specs are a bit of a read ;-) That's also why I hope we can
get some sanity-checking of our MPU design from someone who's used the
MSP430 in real life. I've found myself too often in a situation where
I had concocted some beautiful design with a new uC, just to find out
that it wouldn't work at all, because I had overlooked some utterly
trivial detail that was screaming at my face from the data sheet, once
I realized it was there ...
